This year King’s College London is again running two 6-week courses (28 June – 6 August, 2021) in Ancient Greek and Latin as part of the KCL Summer School.  These courses offer students who have not previously had the opportunity to study Greek or Latin intensive training designed to bring them from complete beginners to a point where they are able to read simple texts.  They are ideal for students who intend to study for a Masters or Doctoral degree to get ahead during the summer, thus acquiring an essential skill for their future research. They are also appropriate for teachers, undergraduates, mature students and anyone with an interest in the Hellenic or Roman world.

This year, the courses will be online only.

It is also possible for complete beginners to take just the first half of the course (28 June – 16 July), and for those who already have a basic knowledge to take the second half of the course (19 July – 6 August).  The cost for each three week course is £840.

Bursaries to help cover the cost of fees will be offered by the Classics Department, and we are grateful to the Classical Association for their support. The closing date for bursary applications is 10 May. Instructions for how to apply for a bursary will be available on the Classics Department website shortly.
